Description

Bouchié-Chatellier have been on their estate since 1930. Robert Poirier established La Renardière domaine close to a small wood where foxes lived, hence the name of the domaine Renard. He was a pioneer with a passion for modernism and a firm believer in the success of Pouilly-Fumé, he expanded the estate over the years and opened a wine bar “Au Pouilly”, in Nevers. Eugene Bouchie bought a vineyard from the neighbouring Château, on the same Saint Andelain hill where the soils are composed of flinty clay and limestone. It is the blending of the two terroirs which gives the “La Renardière” cuvées their complexity. At the beginning of the century, the marriage of the children of these producers gave birth to the present domaine.

This Pouilly Fume is really special – flinty minerality, elegance and a lovely balance. A golden green colour, this Sauvignon Blanc wine has lots of flowery, sappy aromas on the nose with hints of box and blackcurrant.

On the palate it is lively, fresh and aromatic, an elegant wine with a long gunflint finish.

Grape Variety: Sauvignon Blanc
